A very good smaller amp

Cai, 28.08.2015
I bought this amp looking around for a smaller wattage amp that can do more extreme styles of metal with reliable and solid tones, whilst being able to output metal and rock of all styles from Pantera to lighter sounds such as radiohead. With this amp, you will find very good saturated tones that are very well balanced at most settings. Being a Randall, a lot of the time it is incredibly naturally clear sounding, which can be slightly too clear when you want something with very bassy tone, as more counter-clockwise settings on the tone knob usually leave it with a type of bass tone that can tend to drone if dialled in too much, and the same can be said for extreme high end dealing in. However, use of the tonestack shift can help remedy it, and is very useful in creating a great plethora of tones not usually expected of tone knob only amps. The gain and volume knob are effective at bringing in different sounds, however at high gain the volume knob over halfway seems to clean up the sound for some reason, instead of adding tube grit, which puts me off playing it loudly with gain unless I have an overdrive pedal. However, the gain is clear at all levels even at full bore which is a real surprise, and the effects loop is fantastic and my reverb and delay sound very good through it. Overall, a very good metal amp that can do rock surprisingly well and cleans decently too, whilst being very good indeed for quiet situations. It's just a shame that it doesn't have a 3 band Eq, however at this price it would be a miracle to have a full tube amp with such good sound and an Eq on top.

Great Sounding Amp

spj1, 14.06.2016
I use this amp matched with a harley benton g212 cabinet.I mostly play death metal and this amp provides really high gain sounds for this style.

I really love the fact that I can get such an accurate and beefy tone out from this little box.

After using the amp for a while i realized that the lack of a clean channel is not a big problem as it offers really good and distinct clearer tones if you turn the volume knob all the way up and use the gain knob as a volume control.

I would have liked to have a knob for the mids but the 3-way switch does the job for the tone shaping.

Also, the Speaker-Emulated XLR output is a good tool especially for amateur recording or songwriting.


The RD 5 H is a great sounding product and makes me play more and more !
